Complete Cello Sonatas[CD]
~ I Virtuosi Della Rotonda(Boxed Set, 4PC)
A much-underrated composer, Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) was one of the leading composers of the late 18th century, a friend and colleague of both Haydn and Mozart, and a formidable cello virtuoso. His reputation was such that he was nicknamed 'Mrs Haydn' - not in a pejorative sense, the appellation was due to his music sounding Haydnesque, but with a sensual, feminine grace rather than the Sturm und Drang of his Austrian friend's music. Boccherini's prodigious talent as a cellist is apparent in the virtuosic cello sonatas, which call for an array of dazzling instrumental techniques. Cellist Luigi Puxeddu has recorded all of these sonatas, featured on this set.
